When the Acura NSX (known as the Honda NSX outside of North America) first arrived in 1990, it’s high revving V6 and razor sharp handling made it the surprise darling of the automotive press. Unfortunately by the time it finally died out fifteen years later, the industry had surpassed it. But Honda was not done with the NSX. Just like the Nissan’s GT-R, Honda has spend the the last few years meticulously developing a killer car.

We haven’t even seen a clear spy shot of the NSX in over a month, but today AutoExpress took one of the car’s better renderings and turned into a cutaway view of the future Acura supercar.

According to the British magazine, the 2010 NSX will be as technologically advanced as the Nissan GT-R and will compete with models like Ferrari F430, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Porsche 911 GT3.

Under the hood there will be a 5.5-liter V10 delivering 560bhp. The engine will be mated to a six-speed semi-auto box, with steering wheel-mounted paddleshifters. The 0 to 60 mph sprint will be made in less than four seconds, while top speed will go up to 200 mph.

The NSX will go on sale later next year at a price of $150,000 (est.).

560 bph. Thats 911 GT2 territory. Hopefully it will have the gravity defying speed of the old NSX which ran faster than the Ferraris of that time.
